The hardest part of writing for me is trying to figure out what I am going to write about about. If someone would just tell me "Write about this.", I would be fine. So the first thing I am putting out there is...what do you want to hear about?
For right now I will tackle a frequently asked question once a week. So this week's question is...
How far in advance do I need to book?
The simple answer to that is, as soon as you know about your party, it is best to book your entertainment.
It does get more complex than that. If you are looking to book your party during a specific season, such as Christmas, Easter, or communion, realize that there are MANY people looking to book entertainment during those times as well. Those times of year fill up quickly. Consider having the party on a different day. It will be easier to have the details come together.
Also it seems that is one day a month that everyone wants to have their party, and one day a month that no one wants. Don't set your party in stone, and then call for entertainment. Make sure all your ducks are in a row and then send out your invites.
However, it never hurts to call and see if there was a cancellation (I had the chicken pox on the day I was supposed to receive my communion!), or that maybe there is time between events. It just might happen!
